Top Photos from Canroots East 2019

Hundreds of progressive organizers and activists convened at Ryerson University on May 4 for CanRoots East, a day-long conference of sharing, skill-building workshops, and case studies.

Political campaigners, labour field organizers and grassroots activists come together to build solidarity and community, share innovative ideas, and plan new collaborations. We're happy to share some of our top photos from this inspiring gathering. All photos are by Nicky Young and Joshua Fagen.
